Wishlist Fic

October 22nd, 2012 (03:00 pm)

I've been a busy busy schoolgirl and I'm hoping that, as the semester winds down, I can come back to Livejournal and all the pretty, pretty people there! As a sort of a warm-up for getting me back to you guys (I ....never hiatus posted because I'm terrible. If it makes you feel better, I'm just as bad about phoning my parents and I was in an active war-zone then), I've signed up for this Wishlist thingy.

Wishlist 2012, Prompt Post

Short story: first six people who give me prompts get fic for Christmas/whatever holiday you celebrate, or a Winter gift if you don't celebrate anything.

Prompts taken: 1/6

Rules and stuff. Ish. I'm sort of laidback about the actual processCollapse )

Children's Lit

October 3rd, 2011 (11:08 am)

I've talked previously about my final project from Children's Lit being that I can write a story for it. I wanted to poll you guys on the idea I had for this.

What would you guys think of the re-telling of some of the HBO war fandom as fairy tales? They will of course be simplified -- very similar to the one I wrote for uniformly ( I'll probably cannibalize that one because I not-so-secretly love Person's voice) but I like the idea that Sky gave me about writing world events in such a way as children can read it. Sort of. Probably.

An example of this would be as below, a short introduction and the beginning of the WWII fairy tale.

There are many ways to start a story; some begin with a bang and others a whisper. Some stories start at the end and some start with a nameless orphan. No matter where you begin or how you go about it the best way, my loves, is instead to simple start with 'once upon a time'.

Once upon a time in a country very like our own, was a young lad who's family lived upon the bayous. He was short and pale with shocks of black hair so thick it stuck up in a mess no matter how his mother tried to wrestle it down. His name was Roe and although he is very important to our tale, he is not the beginning.

Our tale begins instead far across the sea in a land so old the buildings seem like nothing so much as an extension of the earth -- great stone fortresses who's cracks grow wild and slick with moss and tiny, straw-roofed villages litter the landscape. In it's age this country has seen many battles, many wars and the land despite it's beauty, is scarred and the people weary and drained and slowly a shadow grew and spread.

Feel free to tell me I'm a moron or share ideas!

>:| Fuck you, exam anxiety. I KNOW I HATE EXAMS, DO YOU HAVE TO REMIND ME THREE DAYS IN ADVANCE by making my head ache, my muscles tighten and my aaaaabsolute favorite -- a constant need to swallow down the stomach acid making it's way up my throat. Because we all know, that shit is just TASTEY.

Lol, thanks psych degree for letting me know this means my GABA levels are fucked and also for letting me know I do not want to take benzodiazepine because my physiological reactions to drugs are fuuuuucked uuuuup. See. I KNOW THIS? AND YET I STILL GET EXAM ANXIETY.

At least I am not as likely to actually cry on my psych professors like I ....did on my math professor? (yeah, that was a whoops but I totally did better on this exam and didn't cry on her again! Although, come to think of it, my crying on her the FIRST time might explain why she ....basically wrote down the equations for the final question FOR me on the exam.)


Oh, oh, I know what I wanted to talk about! Why does my university carry no books about psychology as it relates to war situations? I'd think that'd be a big thing and I'm about to say something that may make me sound like a bad person because I am going to use the word 'interested' in relation to someone else's pain and I'm sorry in advance but -- oh my god, the psychological conditions of war and the effects the high level of pressure as well the mental disorders that practically cultivate like larva in wars both past and present interest me so, so much.

If I have to do a paper I sort of want it to be on that. I don't know how I'll manage to get my sources, though, unless I take a term off and see if I can't get myself shipped back over to another war zone in a volunteer psychological/counseling position. ...NO ONE TELL MY MOTHER I SAID THAT. She nearly killed me the LAST time I shipped myself off to a war zone.

I'm just. I'm not having a good day. Dief called off our rare day-out early -- exceedingly so -- due, she says, to tiredness which I can't really fault but which sort of sent my mood plummeting. Add on to that the bathroom renovations which have had dad and I yelling in frustration at each other, the wasp that tried to sting me, and then mom and dad spending over 100 dollars on my card for groceries. And I cannot even take it out on them because I eat food too and it wouldn't be fair to say no because if not me, who, since Zane isn't paying rent and Chris is already owing backpay and is protesting the money he pays ALREADY and I TOLD them I would help, I did!

And then I break one of Chris and Hailey's mugs and what good mood I had just ....flew out the window. And I feel like an idiot for letting it do so.

This has been my vent. Thank you for allowing it space on your flist.

<LaRay> ...there has to be a reason why I just dreamed of the jaws theme, a view closing in on the ocean and then surprise!Jaws!Hitler right?
<LaRay> I mean. I understand the part about Pete Wentz doing a Care Bear Stare before hand but that bit just threw me off.
